Boston sends Seguin to Dallas as part of seven-player trade

Tyler Seguin is headed to the Stars less than a week after Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli said he needed to be a "better pro."

Center Rich Peverley and minor-league defenseman Ryan Button also went to Dallas for wings Loui Eriksson and Matt Fraser, minor-league wing Reilly Smith and minor-league defenseman Joe Morrow.

Seguin, 2010's No. 2 overall draft pick, won the Stanley Cup with the Bruins as a rookie. A year later, he led them in scoring (67 points, including 29 goals) and was an All-Star. Last season he had 16 goals and 16 assists.

At the draft ,Chiarelli essentially said Seguin, 21, wasn't focused enough on hockey. But he made it sound like Seguin would be back with the team, saying he expected "big things from him."

Instead, the Bruins get Erikkson, Dallas' second-leading scorer last season (29 points, including 12 goals) and who turns 28 this month. Smith had nine points in 37 games while shuffling between Dallas and the AHL. Fraser had a goal and two assists in nine games. Peverley, who turns 31 next week, had six goals and 12 assists.

Canadiens: Center Danny Briere, bought out by the Flyers, signed a two-year deal. Briere, 35, had six goals and 10 assists and was minus-13 last season.

Devils: Wing Patrik Elias re-signed for $16.5 million over three years. Elias, 37, has spent his entire 15-year career with the Devils and holds franchise records in goals (375), assists (555), points (930) and games (1,090). Last season he had 14 goals and 22 assists. New Jersey also re-signed center Dainius Zubrus for $9.3 million over three years. Last season Zubrus, 35, had two goals and seven assists while missing 26 games for surgery on his left wrist.

Flyers: Center Claude Giroux agreed to an eight-year, $64 million extension, the Associated Press reported. Giroux, 25, who was entering the final year of his contract, is a two-time 25-goal scorer. Last season he had 13 goals and 35 assists.

Maple Leafs: Center Mikhail Grabovski was waived for the purpose of buying him out four months after he signed a five-year, $27.5 million extension. Grabovski, 29, is a three-time 20-goal scorer but had only nine (with seven assists) last season.

Senators: Paul MacLean, last season's coach of the year, signed a three-year extension.

Wild: Defenseman Keith Ballard, bought out by the Canucks, signed a two-year deal. He had two assists in 36 games last season.
